Summer workshops for Attenborough Arts Centre learners are booking up for Wednesday mornings. 

As you may know, the University of Leicester as a whole has embarked on a new strategic direction recently, under the banner 'Citizens of Change'.  In this 1994 quote from AAC's founding patron Richard Attenborough:

"Today, as a nation, we face daunting problems … the role of the arts in healing a nation divided, a nation in which too many lack work, lack self-esteem, lack belief and direction, cannot be over-estimated. The arts are not a luxury.  They are as crucial to our well-being, to our very existence, as eating and breathing.  Access to them should not be restricted to a privileged few...

The arts are for everyone - and failure to include everyone diminishes us all."

After you email me, I'll add you to the contact list for receiving details of how to book onto expressive writing in-person meetings at the Attenborough. There will be an online Zoom show of interest meeting in May to explain how writing can help us recover.

On May 19th we had a Show of Interest Meeting on Zoom. It was great to connect with six learners there. During the last months we've met 4 times and I've delivered a few workshops to Arts in Mental Health service users, too. Feel free to join in. Listen to my work-in-progress, Thursday 15th July at
